Bottom line: Coleby has not gone back to school since that day. Long long story, but a decision we as a family felt was necessary. Sooooo.....I am trying my hand at Homeschooling for the last few weeks until the long awaited summer! Let me just tell you....it's a LOT of work man!! Well....for the parent!! The schedule goes pretty fast (even though he does spelling, writing, penmanship, social studies, science, grammar, math and reading for at least 25 minutes ...oh yes and art yesterday too) because there isn't that non-sense "filler" time or a teacher being pulled in 21 different directions. So, teaching one child instead of 21 at the same time...it's much easier for the homeschooler to get their work done in a much shorter time period than a regular school day...little or lots of help...either way. We start at 9am and we are finished by noon.
So why all this homeschool talk? Cuz I AM CERTAINLY NOT doing this for a whole school year!!! I just had to share with you the two little videos Coleby made for his Science lesson today.....too damn cute not to show off!!!
Teri helped him construct his little "Orange Cup Bird Feeder" and then helped video this first little clip-
Soo....lil Coleb's goes off to baseball practice and comes home 2 hours later....rushes into my craft room and says, "mom where is the video camera...I have to check to see if any birds ate the orange!!" I was NOT expecting to see this.....BUT it is dang cute!! No idea he would think to narrate AND video himself...hahha
So ladies.....THIS is the giggle for the day!!
